To honor the Summer Olympics, Chipotle will sell burritos wrapped in gold foil at locations in the U.S., Paris and Lyon, France. 

To kick off the Summer Olympics, the Newport Beach, California-based chain will serve gold foil-wrapped burritos for all in-restaurant and digital orders at participating U.S. locations. For the first time, Chipotle will also wrap burritos in gold foil at its six restaurants in  Paris and one restaurant in Lyon.
